Excavation in the forum, 1947

Following wartime destruction, Lady Fox was able to excavate parts of the forum prior to the construction of modern shops in South Street in 1946-9.

This photograph from Lady Fox’s archive shows the foundation trenches of forum walls (foreground); a deserted South Street is in the middle distance.
